What Are Ductless Mini-Splits & How Do They Work?

Ductless mini-splits are all-in-one AC and heating systems that do not require ductwork. These systems consist of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, which are mounted on the wall. Here’s how it works:

  • Refrigerant: Like all air conditioners, ductless mini-splits use refrigerant, a substance that absorbs and releases heat efficiently.
  • The outdoor unit: The outdoor unit uses a compressor to compress and pump refrigerant. The refrigerant is then run through a set of refrigerant lines, which connect the outdoor unit to the indoor unit(s).
  • The indoor unit(s): This unit features an evaporator coil, which plays a crucial role in the heat exchange process, and a fan, which circulates the heated or cooled air throughout the room.
  • Cooling: When cooling, the evaporator in the indoor unit evaporates the refrigerant and absorbs heat from the indoor air, leaving only cool air. A fan then circulates the cooled air throughout the room.
  • Heating: The process reverses and the refrigerant is compressed in the outdoor unit, releasing heat, which is then absorbed by the evaporator in the indoor unit(s) and used to heat the indoor air.

Benefits of Ductless Systems

Ductless mini-split systems offer a range of benefits that make them an ideal choice for homeowners in Northern New Jersey. These versatile systems stand out with:

  • Energy efficiency: Ductless systems require less power to operate than traditional heating and cooling systems, making them cheaper to run.
  • Cost-effectiveness: With the ability to control temperatures in individual rooms, ductless systems help you avoid heating or cooling unoccupied spaces, leading to cost savings over time.
  • Space-saving design: The compact size of ductless systems allows for a flexible installation process, making them perfect for homes with limited space or no existing ductwork.
  • Zoned comfort: Ductless mini-splits enable you to create different temperature zones within your home for personalized comfort in each room or area.

Ductless Mini-Split Installation & Replacement

When it’s time for a new ductless mini-split system, the importance of hiring licensed professionals for the installation cannot be overstated. A licensed professional will have the experience and training to calculate the correct size for your home, and to install your new unit properly for optimal operation.

At Russo Bros. & Co., our licensed HVAC professionals install ductless systems with precision to maximize their efficiency and longevity.

Look out for these signs that it’s time to replace your ductless mini-split system:

  • Age: If your ductless system is over 10-15 years old, it might be time to consider replacing it with a more modern and efficient unit.
  • Frequent repairs: When the cost of constant repairs begins to add up, investing in a new system can be more economical in the long run.
  • Rising energy bills: An unexplained increase in your energy bills could indicate that your ductless system is losing efficiency.
  • Nonstop running: If your ductless system seems to run all the time and you’re still not comfortable, that means it’s struggling to do its job.

Signs You Need Ductless Mini-Split Repair

Your ductless system needs professional attention if it’s:

  • Blowing cool air when it is set to heat
  • Blowing warm air when it is set to cool
  • Making strange noises
  • Turning on and off frequently
  • Leaking from the indoor unit
  • Not responding to the remote
  • Not responding to thermostat settings

If you notice any of the signs above, call Russo Bros. for repair. Addressing it promptly can prevent minor issues from escalating into major problems, preventing further damage and helping your ductless mini-split system function effectively and efficiently.
